Enc contemplates surgery after season

At season's end, right fielder Juan Encarnacion will decide whether or not to undergo surgery on his left shoulder. Encarnacion spent a couple of weeks on the disabled list last month while with the Dodgers because of tendinitis in his non-throwing shoulder.

 

An MRI revealed a damaged labrum in the back of the shoulder. He also has two bone spurs in the front. The labrum problem came to light early this season when he began feeling discomfort after diving for a ball in the outfield.

 

While the shoulder does not affect Encarnacion in the field, it has at times limited the explosiveness of his swing. Encarnacion has had difficulty getting his arms extended on the inside pitch.

 

If Encarnacion does elect surgery, he would require six to eight weeks of rehab before resuming full baseball activities. ...

 

Thursday's crowd of 24,802 was the season's third-smallest at Bank One Ballpark. Seven of the nine most poorly attended games in Diamondbacks history have come with the Marlins in town.

 

I hope he does elect to have surgery...

The incentive was the Dodgers weren't gonna do the deal without Hee Seop, and Brad, Hee Seop, and Murphy just for Lo Duca and Mota would have been ridiculous.

Be happy with Encarnacion, He has speed, power, good arm, great defense. Ill take it, we're not the yankess you know. If you havent noticed we don't have any money be happy with a 5 tool player

it's kinda hard to be a 5 tool player when you're the worst hitting starting corner outfielder in the league.

 

i can do without his 3 tools.

I wonder if Beinfest knew about this before he made the deal...

We brought back Encarnacion for his defense and his current problem which may require surgery will not affect his defense, anything that comes by way of his bat is just a bonus.

It doesn't work that way, when you are a right fielder you better be able to hit. Right Field is not like shortstop, a right fielder can not make up for his lack of hitting with his defense.
